1950 Mercedes Benz 170s Sedan - Factory Webasto Soft Sunroof - Rare Car!!!
One of only a few in the US - Rust Free - Beautiful - WOW!!!
This is a very rare, 1950 Mercedes 170s Sedan with a factory, very desirable Webasto soft sunroof. This is a very rare and desirable car also known as the W 136 IV body style. Only built from 1949 to 1952 with total production with only 28,764 units and only 14,735 built in 1950. Very few were ever imported into the US and this is believed to one of less then 100 in the US according to my research. It has an older restoration and was part of a private collection for many years before we found it. It is the left hand drive version with factory front suicide doors and factory Webasto sliding sunroof. This is a very correct, original car and is a very solid, rust free car that has been very well kept. From the outside the Mercedes 170s still offers plenty of pre-war flair, to give you the impression of an era gone by, a time where cars were slowly built to order and a proud testament of the rich Mercedes history!!
This is a very correct car that has been well taken care of through out the years. It is in beautiful condition the way it sits with just right amount of patina. The car needs nothing to drive as it is and is hit at classic car shows. Mechanically is in great condition and runs like a top. This is a true, rare German classic!!
It has the following equipment:
- 4 cylinder 1767cc engine
- 4-Speed Manual Transmission
- AM-FM Radio
- Webasto Sliding Sunroof
- White Wall Tires
This is a nice 1950 Mercedes 170s Sedan that would make a great driver as it is or an excellent candidate for a light restoration. The burgundy paint is several years old and is fine for a driver. The finish is bright and shinny but has some slight crazing and flaws. To be perfect it would need a beautiful new paint job. The body is solid as a rock, totally rust free and very straight. All, the panel fit is excellent. The hood over laps the grill just a hair and could use a slight adjustment. The chrome and stainless has been all redone and looks beautiful.
The black interior is in great condition and was done several years ago when it was restored. The steering wheel and horn ring is very nice. All the woodgrain in the car is original and in decent condition. Some of the gauges and the radio do not work and need some attention. The sliding soft top was redone and slides great.
Mechanically, this car is in great condition! This Mercedes runs and drives with no issues. The original 4-cylinder engine was fully serviced and runs great. We also just went through the brakes. Under the hood is very clean and looks very original. This car truly runs excellent and is really fun to drive!
All and all, this 1950 Mercedes 170s Sedan is one rare and highly desirable classic car! This is one cool classic Mercedes that is a fun driver the way it sits. What a rare opportunity!
